The press release continues, "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex rejected their royal duties and relocated from the U.K. to Meghan's native California early last year. They are already parents to a son named Archie, who turned 2 last month.

They went public with the news of Meghan's pregnancy in February, a few months after the former actress revealed she had suffered a miscarriage last July in an op-ed for The New York Times.
